About

Howdy Masterminds, and welcome to Master Plan!

This podcast is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) roleplaying game-centric design shows. Each episode focuses on a topic or experiences making a product, drilling down to get to issues and resolutions so we can all learn from them. Most of the episodes are interviews, but there are the occasional solo or round table ones as well.

As for it’s host and producer, I’m Ryan Macklin, an award-winning game designer, writer & editor, primarily known for my work with Evil Hat Productions. I have a blog where I talk must more about my own design & process thoughts, if you’re into that sort of thing.

If you’d like to get a hold of me for whatever reason, you can reach me at ryan@masterplanpodcast.net.
